I love you more than a friend

Hello hello,

Happy Tuesday! Alix here showing my card for today. When I was creating this card, a movie called "Just Friend" came up to my mind. This movie was talking about a formerly overweight high school nerd who attempts to free himself from the friend zone after reconnecting with his lifelong crush and best friend while visiting his hometown for Christmas. So here comes my story of this card. Two best friends are together celebrating the boy's birthday. They both have feeling for each other but not brave enough to express their feelings for love more than a friend. Thank goodness that Cupid's arrow is aiming them to help. Something miracle is about to happen...

There are 3 layers to make this card. To make top layer, I cut top edge of paper using Lawn Fawn Puffy Cloud Border die. then using Pretty Pink Posh Love Shaker die to create the window. I attached a piece of acetate paper behind the window to create clear display. I ink blended Tim Holtz distress ink in Cracked Pistachio,  then I diluted ink with water and randomly splattered on the paper.

To make second layer, I used Lawn Fawn Puffy Cloud Border die again to cut top edge. To create the bottom layer, I used ink blending technique applied Tim Holtz distress ink in Spun Sugar and Antique linen, then I also splattered ink and water mixture to create some texture.

I gathered all layers and created dimension using foam tape as adhesive. I added Pretty Pink Posh Iridescent Heart Confetti to make this shaker window sparkling. I used Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen in Clear to add some shimmer onto "Love" die cut piece. I arranged a few Pretty Pink Posh 4mm Sparkling clear sequins near edge of clouds to bring some interest up there. At last, I added all images that were colored with copic markers to create the whole scene.


  1. I love this card! What a wonderful design concept, and you executed it perfectly! xo

Baby Tags featuring the We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool!

Happy Monday! This is Kim Hamilton and I am so very excited to be sharing my first post with you for Butterfly Reflections Ink! This is making my first day back to work after a two-week break a happy one! I am sharing baby gift tags today, one of my friends is expecting and not sure what she is having so I made one of each!

I used my We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool for the first time and loved it! I cut my own Tim Holtz watercolor paper to the size of tag I wanted (2 3/4 x 4 1/4) and cut the edges with my trimmer.  I stamped my sentiments that are by Lawn Fawn Hello Baby with VersaMark ink and used white embossing powder. For the girl tag I used a mix of Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry and Abandoned Coral Distress Inks and for the boy tag I used Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio and Twisted Citron Distress Inks.  I sprayed both tags with some water and dabbed it off. I then stamped my images by My Favorite Things Snuggle Bunnies for the girl and Magical Dragons for the boy.  I colored m…

Painting backwards....

Hello, hello!  Norine here from The Velvet Lemon blog.  It's been a week for introductions hasn't it, but let me just say how delighted I am to have been invited to join such a talented group of paper crafters, and to contribute here at Butterfly Reflections Ink!  
Today I'm sharing with you, some cards I made by working backwards. 
What do I mean, you wonder?  Well, it's a technique I sometimes enjoy doing, where you "smoosh" your water based ink pads on a craft mat, mist the colors with water and then drag your water color paper through it to create a pretty mess of color.    
For today's cards, I wanted a blend of blues and greens (always a crowd pleaser) and yellows/pinks.  You will always be happier with the results when you keep the green/blues from overlapping with the yellow/pinks, because that just produces an unappealing mud color.  

I used a variety of Tim Holtz Distress Inks for this project, but any water based inks will work the same.  It&#…

Open DT Call for Spring/early Summer Term!

Happy Spring, everyone! The weather here is... confused. LOL Thursday we had 50 degrees, Saturday we had 10 inches of snow and today it was 50 again. We just celebrated my son's 21st birthday on Thursday as many of you know from taking advantage of the celebration sale! Thanks for that. I spent all day packing and shipping orders during the day and then went out for dinner (and his first legal beer) when he got out of work that night. I honestly can't believe he's TWENTY-ONE, such a milestone and it's weird having a man child. HA! Yesterday, we spent the snow day in pjs and doing nothing which was a welcomed change. Today, my husband took our younger son skiing and my daughter and I had a girls' day which was nice. We went out to breakfast, did a little shopping and saw Beauty & the Beast. That's the lowdown over my way. I hope you've all been enjoying the weather, your families, crafting, work or whatever makes you HAPPY! :)
With the change of seasons a…
